Girlfriend´s original 1991 LP release was a single LP that simply excised the last three songs that were included on the original 15-track CD release. Those three tracks were a tremendous loss as the song´s final, elegiac track "Nothing Lasts" was considered as the title track.
Intervention´s amazing Double LP Expanded Edition restores the original 15-song repertoire to three vinyl sides for maximum bass and dynamics. Side D includes three demo tracks- "Good Friend," "Superdeformed" and "Teenage Female."
Girlfriend´s album art was lovingly restored by Intervention´s Art Director Tom Vadakan, and printed as a gorgeous "Old Style" gatefold by Stoughton printing in LA. It´s printed on heavy stock and film-laminated for superior color depth, beauty and durability. The center labels were printed by Dorado.
15 of the 18 tracks on this 2x LP Expanded Edition are 100% Analog Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The last three tracks are Matthew Sweet´s own demo recordings made to DAT and therefore cut from digital files from the DAT masters. Girlfriend´s original 1991 LP release was a single LP that simply excised the last three songs that were included on the 15-track CD release. Intervention´s cut expands the original 15-song repertoire to three vinyl sides for maximum bass and dynamics. There are big, fat guitar tones and controlled but very expressive bass and a massive soundstage. Girlfriend is not only a 90´s classic but an amazingly pure and simply tremendous rock recording!
